So I tried these gluten free wraps last night. Their quinoa and chia seed wraps, and I was very, very unsure of how they would work as wraps. I've tried several gluten free tortillas or wraps, and in my experience they aren't pliable at all, and it kind of takes the pleasure out of a wrap or burrito. And to be honest I kind of didn't want to like them because when they aren't on sale they are six dollars which is too pricey for me to have on a regular basis. So it would be easier if they were rubbish. But, they are the opposite of rubbish!
I made a light, summer-y spicy chickpea salad with a lemon vinaigrette to stuff in the wraps. Delicious!
I noticed right away when I pulled out the wraps they were very soft. Obviously not as soft as flour tortillas, but pretty dang close. I was already impressed. The directions on the package said to heat in either the microwave, oven or stove top. So, I put my wraps in a 350 oven for like two minutes. I wrapped some Romaine and the salad in the wraps, and folded up with absolutely NO breakage. They folded easily, and didn't have to be handled super delicately or anything like that. Amazing.
And they taste great too! They had a nutty, almost whole wheat flavor from I'm guessing the quinoa. I have to say I'm really impressed with these wraps. Definitely the best gluten free bread product I've ever tried. I would eat these even if I weren't gluten free to be honest. And they're vegan, with no funky weird chemicals. I am very pleasantly surprised. Smith's also had the BFree pita bread which I might have to try if they're still on the introductory sale. It was so nice having a wrap when I though maybe I would never something like that again! I really recommend these. The only complaint I have is the price. But unfortunately gluten free everything is way more expensive. Even gluten free flour is double, or triple the cost of regular flour. But other than that these are really amazing and I give them all the thumbs up!
